security team. >> under fire for his past statements about israel and iran. hagel is now speaking out. told his hometown newspaper "lincoln journal star." the distersions about my record have been astounding. once voicing opposition to unilateral sanctions on iran, hagel says while he was "hanging out there in no man's land unable to respond to charges, falsehoods and indistortions, he admitted they took on a life of their own." he's arguing that there's "not one shred of evidence that i'm anti-israeli. nat one vote that matters that hurt israel." hagel defending his iran stance saying unilateral sanctions, "don't work and just isolate the united states." republican critics many who bitterly remember his split from the iraq war are focusing on iran and israel. >> he's an honorable man. he's had a record of distinguished service, but he's profoundly wrong on a number of the most important national security issues that face our country today. >> but this issue of israel and iran is something the white house is nervous about. they began a feverish lobbying effort talking to key leaders of key
and antagonistic and in-your-face nomination to all of those who support israel. freshman senator ted crews of texas absolutely unloading while calling him too weak for the job >> it is interesting. the president seems bound and determined to proceed down this path despite the fact that his record is troubling. he has not been a friend, and in my view, the united states should stand unshakeable with the nation of israel, and he is consistently advocating weakness with respect to our enemies, with respect to the nation of iran, he has exposed sanctions, and the job of the secretary of defense is to be a serious, credible strength and a deterrent and, unfortunately, i think weakness and a secretary of defense invites conflict because bullies don't respect witness. lou: the new minority whip of texas also telling fox business that he will not receive the support. both will need to garner a simple majority in the u.s. senate to assume the position that they have been nominated to. not one democrat as of this broadcast signal a no vote on either nomination. the president's second term administra
is a solid guy who speaks his mind. he's a good supporter of israel. he has been there and the record will show that but he is not reluctant to disagree when he thinks disagreement is appropriate. >> you brought up israel. he referred to a jewish lobby saying it intimidates a lot of people on capitol hill what kind of thinking does that reflect? can you understand pro-israel senators being concerned by that comment? >> they shouldn't be that concerned that term slips out from time to time. there was an article this week that the israeli newspaper, haaretz, occasionally used the same thing. so, chuck should have said israeli lobby, not jewish lobby and perhaps he needs to write on a blackboard 100 times it is the israeli lobby. but is there an israeli lobby. there are people who very supportive of the state of israel. i am very supportive of the state of israel. so is senator hagel and you will see this in the confirmation hearings but it doesn't mean you have to agree with every single position that the israeli government takes. >> fair enough, but on a couple of measures, it seems ve
about the issue of israel and iran and some of his more controversial statements in the past about that. that's been a definite part of the back and forth we've seen. >> briefly, let me ask you on that score because of israel's strike into syria. questions about what the targeting was. it's now been condemned. the secretary general, at least at the united nations, saying that he has grave concerns. i shouldn't use the word condemned, but grave concerns about that israeli air strikes, the first in five years. at this time the united nations does not have details, he says, about the reported incident. what are they saying over there at the pentagon? we've also been briefed today that the vice president when he goes to the munich security conference this weekend is going to meet with the syrian envoy from the united nations, brahimi and will meet with the russian foreign minister and with the syrian national council. >> so far out of this building, while they're keeping many of the details close to the vest, we're not hearing any kind of condemnation, criticism, any negative response. in f
policy record. >> his views with regard to israel, for example, and iran and all the other positions that he's taken over the years will be, you know, i think very much a matter of discussion during the confirmation process. >> so you're not predicting smooth sailing for chuck hagel? >> i think it will be a lot of tough questions of senator hagel, but he'll be treated fairly by republican s in the senate. >> quite frankly, chuck hagel is out of the mainstream of thinking i believe on most issues regarding foreign policy. i expect the president to nominate people different than i would think. i'm going to vote for senator kerry. i don't agree with him a lot, but i think he's very much in the mainstream of thought. chuck hagel, if confirmed to be secretary of defense, would be the most antagonistic secretary of defense toward the state of israel in our nation's history. he has long severed his ties with the republican party. this is an in-your-face nomination by the president to all of us who are supportive of israel. >> lindsey graham is saying that chuck hagel is out of the mainstrea
to our principal ally in the middle east, israel. >> senator mccain released a statement echoing that sentiment, which is so interesting because i think he even considered hagel as secretary of state in his concept if he were president. anyhow, he said this yesterday. i have serious concerns about positions senator hagel has taken on a range of critical national security issues in recent years. as i just mentioned in 2006, while he was preparing to run for president, mccain was asked whether he'd consider hagel for a cabinet post. he cold the "new york times" quote this. i'd be honored to have chuck with me in any capacity. he'd make a great secretary of state. john heilemann. >> that's one of those things that speaks for itself. >> kind of does. what's wrong with these people? >> there's a lot of -- there are a lot of people that pointed out a lot of republicans fans of chuck hagel's before he buck the party's line on iraq, before he turned against the iraq war are now not such big fans of chuck hagel. there was a time, joe made this point yesterday on the show, when chuck hagel
of nebraska. he questioned israel and his unwillingness to back sanctions. listen to lindsey graham yesterday at the state you of the union. >> this is an in your face nomination by the president to all of us who are supportive of israel. i don't know what his management experience is regarding the pentagon, little if any. i think it's an incredibly controversial choice and it looks like the second term of barack obama is going to be an in your face term. >> foreign affairs correspondent jill dougherty is live from washington this morning. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> opposition to hagel comes from the right and left. can you break down the issues? >> yeah. i think it has to really start with israel because the people who believe that he is not a supporter of israel, in fact, they would question his devotion to anything that would help israel. he, for instance, believes in talking to hamas. he also has come out against iran sanctions by the united states. and so that gets other people very worried about his position. he opposed the surge in afghanistan. and when you get into that
message are we sending to israel? i am perplexed that the president has nominated him. >> i want to ask questions about those positions. i am not comfortable -- yet -- i want to ask him questions about those two issues. >> shannon: senators kelley iiot and richard blue menthal are both apprehensive about the president's choice for secretary of state. i sat down with chris wallace to chat about that revealing conversation. the president has offered up a number of nominations for key positions and you had two senators to talk about the nominations of former senator hagel. >> that will be a tough nomination. we had two members of the armed services committee, which will hold hearings. iiot is very concerned with the positions that hagel has stated and voted in years as a senator on iran, on israel, on defense cuts, on a variety of issues. and she indicated that at this point, that she is leaning against him. and he is going to have to persuade her in one-on-one meetings, the nominees meet with each of the members of the committee and in the committee hearings. but she said, he's going to h
, but the proxy americans look at when it comes to the middle east is israel, when it comes the dealing with iran, with israel, with the broader region. hillary clinton holds the record for the most countries visited at 112. israel, the least visits from any secretary of state since rogers. henry kissinger, 36 times for israel. is this significant? >> well, i mean, she was very energetic. i don't know if she gets frequent flyer miles for all of the miles she logged. that is her job as chief diplomat. >> sadly probably the one perk she does not get. >> right, but the fact is our relationship with israel hasn't been the best. so i don't know if you can directly equate that. anne marie served in the administration. but under the obama administration, relations with israel have been very tough. they may have reached a bottom and mare they're on an uprise, but once again, i think this comes down to president obama's policy. remember, she's the secretary of state. she implements the president's agenda, and i think a lot of the problems out there, i think, were president obama's vision. i think i may be
about israel. in 2006 he gave an interview tomorrow toer middle east envoy aaron david miller. hagel said the following. >> the jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up there. i'm a united states senator. i'm a united states senator. >> reporter: hagel favors direct talks with iran and as well as hamas. and he was one of two senators to vote against sanctioning iran. >> he consistently advocated weakness with respect to our enemies, with respect to the nation of iran. he has opposed sanctions over and over again and the job of the secretary of defense is to be a serious, credible strength and deterrent and, unfortunately i think weakness in a secretary of defense invites could not flick because bulllies don't respect weakness. >> reporter: his defenders point out that chuck hagel valiantly in vietnam. he received two purple hearts there. knows what war is all about but his critics pipt out that was against the surge in iraq. he called it the biggest foreign policy mistake. he warned it would be the biggest foreign policy mistake since vietnam. obviously the surge turned out differ
in washington last april you voiced concerns about israel. you said in part, quote, in this place we may ask, have we learned anything from it, speaking of the holocaust. if so, how is it that assad is still in power? how is it that the number one holocaust denier, ahmadinejad, mahmoud ahmadinejad, still is president of iran? he who threatens to use nuclear weapons to destroy the jewish state. how concerned are you about the future of israel today? >> i'm, of course, terribly concerned because israel is the only place where jews have after all come to build their own state, 2,000 years after they have lost it to the romans, and if god forbid something happens to that state, the jewish people would not be able to take it, to deal with it, two catastrophes in our memory, it is impossible to bear and, therefore, really, we're committed to the security of israel and we try whatever we can do to help it in honor and in peace. but will still i'm worried. of course, i'm worried. statement i'm worried when other tragedies occur in this world and there are so many. >> do you feel like this country's
. it happened just outside damascus and marked the first attack by israel against syrian targets in some five years. syrian state tv insisted the air strike hit a military research site, not a weapons convoy. >>> "the new york times," chinese hackers have spent months infiltrating the computer systems and trying to gain access to reporter and staffers' information. this according to a new report from "the times." the attacks stem from an article published in october saying that the prime minister had accumulated billions of dollars through business deals. >>> "the los angeles times," wall street is feeling cautiously better about facebook this morning after a surprise fourth quarter. the social media company saw a 40% jump in revenue from the same time a year ago. largely due to successfully integrating advertising into their mobile apps. but the cost of investment in mobile dragged down facebook's profits. >>> and, of course, willie geist, the "daily news" is reporting sex-crazed sarge betted my new york pd hubby, laid to rest. so let's go to "politico" now. >> sounds good. joining us now, t

on israel, for example, and iran? or is it really, truthfully, a proxy fight for something else? >> well, look, i mean, there may be people in the senate who have legitimate disagreements with him on israel. he is pro-israel. has he been 100% pro-israel by the aipac standard? no, he hasn't been. but you know who hasn't been? that's president obama. he's the one that makes the middle east policy. the defense secretary is the one who is overseeing the fighting of wars. so pretty much by definition this shouldn't be about foreign policy and diplomacy but about war fighting. >> right. >> it does raise the question of whether it has something to do with president obama rather than chuck hagel. >> maybe just a bit. dana, i want to change the topic slightly because there is a slight chance, as you may know, that the american flag will revert to 49 stars. take a listen to this. >> lots of reasons we believe texas should leave the union, but basically it boils down to political freedom that we have lost, cultural freedom we have lost, and certainly the economy. >> now, dana, this is what the amer
commitment to our principleal l ally in the middle east, israel. >>> trying to not just score board win after a couple of losses, including the fiscal cliff deal. this fight already looks like a campaign, complete with ads. >> president obama, for secretary of defense chuck hagel is not a responsibility option. >> the same group that put out that ad, the emergency committee for israel, bought the domain name chuck hagel.com and using it to raise questions about the nomination. he's defenders in the meantime have formed their own groups. and the most powerful will not get involved in the fight. let's bring in jonathan capehart and david druker for roll call. >> howard curtz writes, if the republicans can torpedo the nomination, they will look hagel look weak. if hagel is confirmed. they'll be forced to spend capital. >> confirmation -- the confirmation process has always been in recent times a knock-down, drag-out bloody battle for the president to get his picks into his cabinet. and coming after losing the presidential election, losing seats in the house and senate, to democrats, the republic
of the committee. >> hagel's commitment to israel and where he will be able to play tough with iran and nuclear ambitions. hagel has been lob being hard trying to win support of one member at a time. chuck schumer uncertain about hagel decided to back him after winning commitments on israel. at least some senate republicans this will be a big thumps down. >> i cannot support who thinkings we should be tougher on israel and more lenient on iran. >> hagel wiould oversee the mil te mill tear reat a time of slipging budgets and tough choices. the fiercest critics are going to be from the right. wide licks pekted despite a tough couple days ahead hagel is going to ultimately be confirmed as the nation's next secretary of defense. back to you guys. >> doug luzader a lot going on in washington today. >> a lot going on in the south. extreme weather in the southeast. tornadoes ripping through half a dozen states leveling everything in its path and this morning two people are dead. mark height ner is in georgia and that's an area that has seen widespread damage this morning. things are looking really bad
chuck hagel for pentagon head because of his positions on israel the other day. the real canary in the coal mine on the trouble that the hagel nomination has faced was on "meet the press" several weaks ago when senator schumer surprisingly wouldn't commit to supporting him. and usually when the president has a nominee, favorite nominee, a name out there, the number three democrat in the senate, chuck schumer, is going to say sure, i'll support him. he said he's going to listen for the hearings. and that's where he still is. just wednesday at a private breakfast at park avenue winter, one of those fancy restaurants up there, senator schumer was saying that he was very uneasy about senator hagel's positions on israel over the years and that a lot would depend on what he says in his confirmation hearing about israel. we're hearing now those confirmation hearings, the end of the month, maybe even january 31st. >> andrea mitchell, couldn't the president take care of this fairly quickly by calling chuck schumer and chuck hagel into the oval office and saying, chuck, this is where i am
and neighbors like israel that are going to be profoundly affected by it. and so it's true sometimes that we don't just shoot from the hip. >> so richard haass, is this payback for, let's say, bill clinton doing such a great job for the obama campaign? >> we're speculating. >> people are still going back and saying the most important speech of that campaign was the one given by bill clinton, without question. that was the turning point for the -- i mean, i say turning point, those guys were pounding republicans who they were targeting from the very beginning, but that was really when america just, i think, turned. bill clinton captured the moment and defended the presidency. >> well, it's clear that bill clinton's support for the president helped his re-election both at the convention and beyond the convention. you're asking me to speculate on something i simply don't know anything about. >> well, that's what we do here. >> sorry. >> how long you been coming here? >> secretary of state leaving office, the president does a joint interview? >> i've never seen it before. the secretary of speech is
spoke last night to christians united for israel in washington, d.c. and said hagel is absolutely the wrong man for this job. >> i cannot support someone who thinks we should be tougher on israel and more lenient on iran. we need a defense secretary who understands and fully appreciates the danger of a nuclear iran and the importance of a strong u.s./israel alliance. >> joining me now is democratic senator, barbara boxer of california. senator, it's good to have you here. and as we had the breaking news, the video just coming in moments ago of john kerry, getting the voice vote of confirmation for being the next secretary of state, the full senate voice expected this afternoon. but you were in that room, but it's going to be a lot different when it comes to chuck hagel's confirmation. completely different, especially given the rhetoric that you're already hearing this weekend. senator menendez and john mccain may decline to go on record of how you're going to vote. you're going to come out saying you did have reservations, but now you support him. what's your reaction on your resp
the main pro israel lobbying group the jewish lobby. he's gotten a lot of questions about that. also questions about what kin of sanctions against iran he has supported. he has been skeptical of unilateral sanctions and this is something the white house very much acknowledges, but they point to the fact that he supported sanzes against iran backed by a coalition. the u.s. and other countries. president obama sort of in a veiled way referred to this yesterday and his commence in the east room and he said that haggle realizes that america is strongest when it stands with its allies. i will tell you, soledad, the white house feels that although this will no doubt be a tough confirmation process, that hagel will get some really tough questions from republicans and democrats who at this point, many of them holding back on endorsely hagel, the white house and president obama feel when hagel has a chance to answer those questions, he will give good answers, convincing answers, that will get him the support he needs in the process. to that end, it was at least twice yesterday that he was urg
's inauguration will be the election in israel. president obama has to be able to manage the relationship with the prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, who everybody thinks is going to win, and see if he can keep him from going to war against iran. if that's what the u.s. feels should be the case. beyond that, the negotiations that are already under way will require sensible action from iran but also political courage from the president and from this administration because you cannot -- it's not a one-way process. it will take political courage and political capital to say to iran, you can enrich only to this amount and we'll have strong processes in place. we'll able to monitor. people in congress, in israel, they don't want any enrichment. that will be the challenge for the president -- north korea, do you see that as a real threat? >> north korea may very well launch another nuclear test. other diplomats have told me that's a possibility. it's not the kind of immediate threat that some of the other countries are. nobody really believes that north korea is going to launch a nuclear weapo
it stands out for this one group. >>> stand by. i want to bring in congressman steve israel who joins us right now. congressman, thanks for being here. >> good morning. >> let me start with this. even john boehner said now is the time to deal with immigration. but, you know the questions you were just talking about. is will some of your colleagues on the far right, tea partyiers, perhaps, support this path to citizenship for illegal immigrants? >> well, you know, jackie kucinich had it exactly right. this has the prospect of s success. it's all about whether house republicans are willing to stand up to the tea party base. you've got a bipartisan group of senators left and right advocating a path forward. you've got the president of the united states who will unveil his views on a path forward. what this comes down to now is will these house republicans who have pandered to their intolerant tea party base, who have fed into the extremism of that tea party base, are they willing to stand up to the tea party and do what's right for america? we'll see whether they're able to amass the votes
. >> are they using technology against us? >> yes. u.s. has been conducting the cyber war with israel against iran since 2009. we are attacking nuclear research with now where. in one case we caused us centrifuged to spin out of control and explode. gerri: we go after what is considered wrong and illegal but they go after the consumer personally. >>. >> golf tear with love and wear -- war. if you consider the fact we are at war covert iran has retaliated for the attacks carried out. >> the above the administration put out in order that declares cyberspace functionally equal with warfare with the ground and air and cyberspace it is legitimate domain for warfare. covering this over a year-and-a-half, the logical problem is u.s. and israel have the undeclared war. >> but there is a good reason. it is a different kettle of fish. they care deeply. thank you for coming on. we appreciate your time. fox business alert. apple may introduce a cheaper i phone. it speculates it will fight back against the interphone. investors don't like the idea. apple could lower the price by using a cheaper material for th
at critics who question his support for israel. in his first interview since the president nominated him to be defense secretary, the former nebraska senator told a lincoln newspaper his record is being distorted and an accurate assessment will reveal unequivocal total support for israel. >>> and in the next hour of "early start," we'll be joined by peter beinart, correspondent for "newsweek" and the daily beast about the implications of hagel's nomination. >> a fascinating talk. >>> james holmes is expected in court today again in colorado. a police officer testified that holmes was, quote, very, very relaxed. the preliminary hearing will determine if holmes will stand trial in this case. 12 people were killed in the shooting and, of course, dozens and dozens were wounded. >>> and bells will be ringing across tucson today marking two years since the shooting that killed six and severely wounded congresswoman gabrielle giffords. giffords and her husband, mark kelly, also announcing a new gun-control initiative that they are launching today. their new website, americansforresponsiblesolut
that hagel has held with respect to iran and israel, would he, in fact, support the fullest protection of israel if there were any kind of a threat from iran that materialized? also, issues related to gay americans and would there be an issue with that, especially given the fact he's serving a democratic president? so they spent the time, they talked it out and very important indication that schumer will encourage his colleagues in the senate to go along and support the hague el nomination, as well. one of the sort of dances that's going to happen here is typically a former senator or senator put up for nominee in this way is confirmed pretty easily among friends in the senate who know them and have a personal history so to have resistance to chuck hagel has been one of the more unusual circumstances. you see the contrast talking about john kerry for sost. you have people in both parties coming forward supportive for his nomination. schumer and boxer, two of the prominent jewish american senators saying they feel confident that hagel will protect israel, they think that's important ste
in the military, we would have laid down our lives for the defense of israel. i went to the middle east with senator hagel and heard him talk about having the strength of having america defend israel. my take on end of the day, senator schumer critically will probably do what he did once for america, defend that that is best for national security interests. i think he's going to be key and you'll see in these hearings that chuck hagel, former enlisted man for vietnam will get this nomination because of what he will do for america's security. >> based on what admiral sestak just said, politico is reporting saying if schumer would oppose hagel it would amount to a fatal blow to his candidacy since a number of pro-israel democrats could very well be influenced by the number three democrat's position. there is enough people trying to give hm a heisman so to speak, to his nomination, knowing that he's a republican and there are defense cuts that need to come and republicans don't like that idea. >> to go back to senator schumer for a min u it's important to rise, his constituency got hit wit

with the best of intentions. but it's still a bad choice. hagel is anti-woman, anti-choice, anti-israel, anti-gay, and pro-assault weapon. that's just not what we voted for in november. chuck hagel doesn't share our values. there are other people who can do the job. why do we need someone like this? we don't. urge your senator to vote no on hagel. >> so why the anti-hagel backers in the group use your mandate so shy in a source close to the group told "huffington post," quote, those involved are choosing to stay anonymous because they're allies with the obama administration and hesitant to criticize the president publicly for fear of retribution or pressure from the white house. the source characterized members as a concerned group of people who have some questions about chuck hagel, including individuals who have fought for lgbt rights for a long time. oh, really? that just doesn't sound right to a lot of people, including many reporters and our own rachel maddow. let's listen to rachel. >> probably they're asserting there's some kind of broad democrat opposition to chuck hagel. we're just n
